It is a model that I started twenty years ago,i have never finished by lack of motivation.When I was very young my father was of the equipment for the forest contractors.The original of my model had a roll off that he had made,for the loading of the pulp

Looks to be a great build. So are you finally motivated to finish it?

Awesome! Probably my favorite Chevy of all time. Is this a conversion of yours or did you use a kit or resin body? I'd really love to replicate my work truck. Great job!

That looks amazing I agree I WOUNDNT change anything.  Nice weathering or maybe its dust, mmmm not sure.  That must be resin, never seen that body as a kit.

 I do see these in the summer as a lot of farmers in our area use them for corn and grain harvesting.  I can't believe some of the trucks these farmers have.

Thank You the guy,my lack of motivation was that I do not remember very well to all the details of the roll off that my father was.I do not like to work only of memory,sometimes have done error.It shalt surely not identical but it shalt be when even well I think it shalt be well in a working situation

Grate work on that littel one. Did you rework the fenders by your self or is that a resin cab?

Now THAT IS SWEET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Is that a conversion of the Revell pickup or a resin cab? The grille looks so right! If this is a conversion that you did, then I have to say that it is unique, very pretty and extremely well done!! You need to do another cab like that and give it to a resin caster to produce because I'm sure that more than a few would sell! What did you use for a chassis and engine and how did you make the grille??? That is truly a very special model and my hat is off to you for doing such a spectacular job!!!!track_12-_sheer_perfection_zps00a4827e.g

You really caught the look right. Thank you for sharing..,.

 introduced before the weathering.I may be forgotten a few small details i was 11 years old when my father has built this roll off.Of course this was not a GM 66 but a Ford 58.The arrives of the roll off has been revolutionary for the truckers forest
